Hi Mr K,
I have no idea how to add a metadata pair.
I did go to edit item and attempt to add a custom field. That made no change except that added field showed on my page as text.

I do have some pages where I use html to give a "Next Episode" thing to click on the page link below.

Is there a metadata editing page for beginners here at the Archive?

Jeff,

What metadata pair is that? If I attempt to add a field "Next issue" I get an error message if I enter text, and an error for HTML. Error message:

Added field name, "next issue", may only contain characters: a-z A-Z 0-9 _ -.

Here is a Serials in Microfilm item that appears to use these fields:

There are many more examples in that collection.

Thank you.

looks as though that metadata key is not enabled for all collections. for now i'd say use html to add a link in the description field.

Jeff, thanks. I found that adding "next" will allow HTML, but "next number" won't work. Example:
